Top 10 sailing destinations around the world include a California island
If your idea of the perfect vacation involves sea breezes and flapping sails, you’ve got a fellow sailing aficionado over at the travel advice site, TripsToDiscover.com. The site offers travel tips and “best of” lists for destinations around the world, from luxury beach house rentals in California to beautiful beaches in the South of France and top sailing adventure destinations.
The latter is written by California native K.C. Dermody and offers 17 enticing possibilities from French Polynesia to Turkey, Croatia and Zanzibar. You’ll find destinations where you can hire a barefoot charter or cruise aboard a traditional dhow, snorkel, dive or simply sail.
The Grenadines, a chain of tiny Caribbean islands, tops the list, thanks to their beautiful views, pristine beaches, friendly harbors and plentiful sailboat charter options. (If you’re a fan of “The Crown,” Princess Margaret’s getaway spot was on Mustique, which is part of this island chain.)
Here’s a sneak peek at the top 10. Find all 17, along with travel tips, photographs and lodging recommendations at www.tripstodiscover.com.
